An RV–Camping Wedding

Huntley Park, near Gold Beach Oregon

Wedding at Huntley Park, Gold Beach Oregon

As we came back from Gold Beach yesterday there was a sign and arrow which said something about a wedding here in the park.  Apparently the wedding including a large campout in a group area of the park.  Above was the conclusion of the wedding ceremony…but they partied well into the early night.

As you can see, I was very far away from the wedding, sitting on a park bench, hiding between the large tree on the right, and the brush on the left.

This is how close our motorhome was to where the wedding took place, which was essentially behind that group of trees there in the middle of the picture.

I got this picture about four hours before the wedding was to start…which was suppose to be 3 pm.  In the true “RV Flexibility” way of life…it started more like 4 pm.

Probably the only drawback to the weddings location is that it was right on the main entrance.  Here is a Porsche which I thought, as it pulled into the park, was here for the wedding…but instead it did a tour of the park and here it is exiting.  It had Florida plates on it, but something tells me that “if” they are RVers, they pull it in a trailer.

Due to the delay, someone got out a couple bottles of “bubbles”, and put a bunch of bubbles up into the air.  These two youngsters were trying to catch some…I think they would rather be the ones blowing the bubbles instead of the adults who were going around doing so.

These fellow campers had a front row seat right from their campsite…which made me feel better since even at the distance I was, I felt like I was intruding just a bit.

Above are just two pictures which show the wedding party.  In the one on the left, yes, that groomsman has short pants on.  In the picture on the right, yes, that groomsman has something on his head…as shown in the picture to the right.  Yes, a camouflage cap, worn backwards, of course.  The lady with the “see-through-dress” seemed to be the wedding coordinator.  She was giving the signal for each of the couples to start their walk, and she had a basket of flower petals for the flower girl which she was to hand to her as she Wedding at Huntley Park, Gold Beach Oregonwalked by…probably didn’t want the young girl to drop the basket ahead of time…but that plan did not work because the coordinator dropped it, spilling many of the flower petals.  She picked up many of them, and handed the basket to the young girl who proceeded to walk up the right hand side, and not the center aisle way.  But the coordinator got her back on track, and the bride was ready for her entrance.

Tried to get a picture of one of her occasional tossing out of petals, but to no avail.  Thank goodness the Bride’s Maid of Honor had scattered some petals on the ground before the wedding started.

With that, the bride makes her entrance….and that pretty much competes the wedding story since I covered the ceremony at the start of the post.

Took this picture above at noon, just could not believe these four prime river spots were open on a Saturday…three which are back-in (or head-in) towards the river, and the far one which is one of the few pull-through where you are parallel to the river.  Of course, less than 15 minutes after I took this, a fellow Floridian pulled in with his long Class C pulling a trailer with a “Trike” motorcycle in it.  He said that a guy in Clearwater built the Trike for him.  Later, the other sites filled up too…but it just shows that prime spots can be found here just about every day…the last of these four spots filled at 4:30.

We won’t be able to see the solar eclipse, unless it happens to be an unusual Oregon Coastal Morning on Monday the 21st.

Every morning the costal fog has not burned off until 11 am at the earliest. The eclipse is suppose to hit our area starting at 9:02, with maximum at 10:14 where it will be 94% coverage in this area of Oregon.





This is one of the first evenings that the fog had not rolled back in yet when the sun was eclipsed by the mountain to our west…that is the closest thing to a sunset we are going to get around here.

  1. Yeah, I don't think an RV park would be MY choice for a wedding ... looks like a pretty casual affair though, and I rather imagine it didn't cost them a fortune. Gosh, it looks like I might even get MY rig in there!!

    1. There are at least 20 (or more) sites you could fit in. Sites are long and wide and lots of grassy stuff for the kids.
